Description

The surprise attack within the Auriga Star System was worse than brutal; it was heinous, leaving the US Navy's 3rd Fleet decimated.

Thousands of crew are reported dead, including the ship’s captain. Reluctantly, the young XO, Galvin Quintos, will be taking command of the fleet's crippled dreadnaught, the USS Hamilton, while doing his best to bring fleet survivors back to Earth. To make matters worse, there’s a murderer running loose on board the ship, critically low fuel levels, and the Grish are back, in fast pursuit and ready to finish what they’d started. Only by sheer luck - and a good measure of cagey smarts - will Quintos be able to rise to the challenge.

Loosey-Goosey Dreadnaught

Mark Wayne and McGinnis write good prose and the book outline combining a serial killer whodunit in the midst of a number of dangerous enemy encounters held the promise an interesting story.

There are some issues with his understanding of military protocols. The first indication of this was when XO Galvin allowed a young gunny to respond to him in a foul-mouth laden sarcastic manner without any admonishment. There were other incidents where this occurred from others in the crew which made it appear that he was the captain of a pirate starship rather than a fleet dreadnaught. The author's fantasy hidden sexual encounter between the ship's doctor and the XO was ridiculously male YA level. The introduction of an robotic AI with a split personality was too simplistic and with many rough edges to be believable even given the SciFi nature of the novel.

James Patrick Cronin performance was quite good.

BORING

Boring plot. Monotone performance. Ridiculous characters. Too many inconsistencies in storyline. Blech! AND THE REPETITION @#$$

Requires Serious Suspension of Disbelief

It’s been a very long time since I’ve written a review, let alone a negative review. However, the first 10% of this book was very taxing for someone who tends toward emphasizing the positive. The thing is that a lot of the setup for this book fatally undermines its protagonist from the first minute. Seriously, he can’t figure out how they could have been ambushed when all of his ship’s department heads are having a routine staff meeting when emerging from FTL into a contested star system? Then, when given command responsibility for saving his ship and his crew, he goes off to do the work of a common sailor rather than employing his training and experience to coordinate repair and rescue efforts?
I genuinely dislike reviews that harsh on things other people like, but if you came to this expecting something grounded in the realities or at least the believable trappings of a maritime thriller in space, you might be better off skipping this one.

Very enjoyable

I found this book a very enjoyable listen. The somewhat unconventional leadership style of the main character may not be to everyone’s liking but one gets the rising trust and camaraderie between the characters. The book is good enough to be drawn in and want a sequel. Can’t wait for the continuation. A great start to a new series.

meh

Somewhat entertaining, but juvenile, and often pointless dialog. I found it to be rather bottom shelf.

So much

The twists and turns made for great listening. Cronin is great as this protagonist’s narrator.

whiney, immature protagonist. grating narrator

Lousy main character. An Executive Officer, of a major ship of the line, would not behave like a whiney inexperienced high school kid.
Verbose tedious descriptions of minor technical points abruptly slotted into story flow.
Narrator was equally annoying. Hmm, unless that was the narrator's intent, to accurately reflect the main character's first person narrative? Nah.
